A 3 year old and a 1 year old oh my!

Well I loaded all the pictures backwards because that's what I used to have to do w/ Blogger to get them to appear correctly but apparently they fixed that so these go from the end to the beginning. . .
Ty turned 1 year old on November 15th!  I can't believe a year has gone by. . .this time last year I was kinda coo-coo. . .I think I've gotten a little better. hee hee:)  Gosh, this little guy is my SNUGGLER (especially w/ Carol!) :)  He loves to hug.  He started walking at 11 months so was a pro by his birthday.  Ty's favorite food is pizza and ice cream so that's what he had on his birthday.  Total boy.  His favorite toy is the ball popper--he could play with it for ever.  He loves throwing the balls over his back. . .Zach says he's practicing his touchdown dance.  :)  He likes to play with toys that make noise and he loves putting toys in containers. . .this sometimes means toys go into the ball popper which makes it a bit hard for the balls to pop.  He adores his sister and wants to be playing whatever she is playing with.  (She doesn't love it so much)  Ty loves to open and close doors and thinks he is really funny when he does it. . .drives me nuts because I am scared he is going to lose a finger.  He also loves to get into the cupboards. ..and garbage!  ugghh--I don't want to baby proof my cupboards so I'm hoping he becomes disinterested in this quickly!  He enjoys climbing the stairs whenever we allow him to.  He HATES when his Daddy leaves for work in the morning and LOVES when he gets home at night.  He is my happy little boy that always just goes with the flow and makes me wanna burst with love and happiness.  Walking into his room in the morning to his giggles, jumping and big smiles is the best thing in the world!!  I love you little guy--Happy Birthday to you.
 This is how Ty's birthday party ended--he was pooped!
 He loved his new car from mom and dad--his sister and cousin loved it too!
 Mom and Dad with the big birthday boy.
 Ty was so cute with his cake.  He leaned down and took bites with no hands most of the time.
 The cake was made by Amy, my sister in law---we love Amy Cakes!  The block letters were a gift from Leah at one of my baby showers.  I thought they looked cute by the cake.
 Ty had to get his hair cut for the first time before his big day.  He did really good and looks so dang cute w/ his short hair.  My little man!
1 year well check up stats:  21.6 lbs-50th percentile, 30.75 in tall-80th percentile. . .I'm not sure the height is going to last too long. :)
Abigail Kristine celebrated her 3rd birthday on November 6th, just a week before Ty.  Ty and Abs had been sick w/ the flu just days before her birthday and then I got it ON her birthday so our celebration that night was a bust.  We did celebrate the next night by taking Abs out to Red Robin--her fave place to eat because she gets quarters and wins candy!  Abby is all about Cars and Toy Story this year.  She is getting quite an imagination and I love sitting back and watching her play.  Her favorite foods are cucumbers (the girl could eat an entire cucumber!), popcorn, ice cream (she sometimes cons me into letting her have it for breakfast) and they both love steak!  HA  She is the most polite little girl I know, saying "thank you Mom" and please, excuse me and God bless you. She is quite the talker all.the.time!  I love the things she says.  I can't even believe she is three years old!  She is pretty much out of the terrible twos and only has fits here and again. . .for the most part she wakes up happy and goes to bed happy.  Today she woke up and crawled into our room acting like a puppy.  Hilarious!
So Abs got to celebrate her birthday with her friends at preschool on her actual birthday--I made cupcakes (right before I got sick-thank Goodness) for her to take to school, then she got to go to Red Robin the next night, celebrate w/ some family at Chuck E Cheese on Saturday and end w/ the Fresh Beat Band Concert!  She had a wonderful week of celebrating.  I love you sweet girl--Happy 3rd Birthday!

 Here we are at Chuck E Cheese--Griffin pretty much just drove this the ENTIRE time.  He loves anything "workin man"!

 We discovered that Ty loves anything with a steering wheel.  He had a great time on the rides too.
 Could this not be the sweetest pic ever?  Cousin Sophes kissing the birthday girl!
 All the gals headed out to the Fresh Beats!  Abby and Sophia LOVED the concert.
 The mini cupcakes I made for preschool.  Cherry Chip w/ pink frosting--my fave. . .so I was hoping it would become Abby's fave too but she's more of an ice cream gal like her Dad.
 Grandma and Grandpa got Abs a new trampoline since she loves to jump and she is on that thing all.the.time!  She will watch TV while jumping. . .poor girl is gonna lose weight if she's not careful.  Ty also loves this thing.  He sits on his knees and jumps and laughs so hard.  It's hilarious but also a lot of work because I have to make sure he doesn't fall off.
Our dinner at Red Robin.  She wanted this Cars hat to wear. . .just looks awesome!  She wasn't so sure about the crew singing to her.  :) 
3 year well check up stats:  29.50 lbs.-38th percentile (gettin skinny!) and 36.42 in.- 34th percentile. . .gonna be a shrimp like her mama I think. :)
Now on to Daddy's birthday on Monday--November is the Birthday month at the Wyckoff home!!
